Our Board of Directors

Our Board members, representing different Christian churches, are volunteering their time and energy so that individuals can experience a deeper, more intimate relationship with God. It is their hope that people’s lives will be profoundly changed by practicing meditation.

Teresa Yerkes,

I am the Founder of the Christian Meditation Center and a follower of Christ since 1983. On this spiritual journey I find myself both a student and a teacher seeking God’s direction daily. I am most grateful for my wonderful family and friends.

Melody Thomas,
Vice President

I am a believer of Jesus Christ (Yahoshua) for 45 years. I believe that Christ can do all things. I have been blessed with a loving husband, two wonderful daughters, and over 20 years in the healthcare industry as a physician assistant.

Beverly Tipton,

I've been a Christian most of my life. Meditation is helping me move into a deeper, more loving and thoughtful relationship with Christ, his people and creation. I am happy to serve my community as a member of the Board of Directors of the Christian Meditation Center.

Sandra Zimmerman

Having a relationship with God is the upmost important part of my life. My husband and I are blessed with two beautiful daughters and two grandsons. I have sent over forty years serving in the healthcare industry, and it is pleasure to serve God’s children as a Board member at CMC.

Carla Hanley

A life-long Christian, I rely on God for daily guidance. I am blessed with a loving family and many friends. A psychotherapist for over 25 years, I am currently in private practice.

Nadine Mack

I have run from God like Jonah. Then, I scoffed at the gift of sitting still. Years as a Christian have brought me awareness that God creates space during meditation and that space transforms my eyes, heart and action. So glad to be a member of this Board to continue to serve my LORD and savior to bring more people to the gift of being present through contemplation with GOD.
